- The BSNL Bumper Offer was originally launched back in June 2018
- The newly launched yearly plans of Rs 1,699 and Rs 2,099 also ship with additional 2.2GB data per day
Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL), the government led telecom operator is focusing a lot on customer service as the telco has yet again decided to extend its Bumper Offer or Additional Data Offer which ships extra data benefit to the consumers. When the offer was launched, the Bumper Offer used to ship 2.2GB additional data over the daily data benefit which the subscribers had in their plan. The offer was then revised to offer 2.21GB additional benefit to the consumers, and now, BSNL is again back to offering 2.2GB daily data. Previously this offer was eligible over 11 pre-existing plans of BSNL, whereas, now BSNL has made the offer valid over two more plans which come with 365 days validity. In a new turn for this offer, BSNL has decided to extend the offer till April 30 from its previous deadline of January 31. The extended offer will kickstart from February 1 across 19 circles except for Kerala. In Kerala, BSNL has a different additional data offer.
BSNL Bumper Offer Extended Till April End: What You Need to Know?
Notably, BSNL had introduced a Monsoon Offer last year which began the trend of offering 2.2GB additional data over the set limit for BSNL subscribers. The offer which was rolled out that time was to be valid till September 14, 2018, but to the surprise of BSNL subscribers, the telecom operator extended the validity of the offer to November 14 thus making the users happy. BSNL reintroduced the same offer, after seeing immense response from the users and this time named the offer as “Bumper Offer”, previously, the telecom operator had extended the validity till January 31, but because of a positive response from the consumers, now the telecom operator will ship this offer till April 30, 2019. Having said that, BSNL is known for making such extensions to the promotional offers it launches.
The users of BSNL should also clearly understand that this 2.2GB data benefit applies over their standard data pack and will not be a mere replacement of their plan, meaning that if a BSNL subscriber enjoys a plan which offers him or her 4GB daily data, then paired with the Bumper Offer, the subscriber will get access to a total of 6.2GB data daily.
Bumper Offer Also Applicable On Year-Long STV Plans
On top of that, there is also another positive news for BSNL subscribers. Previously, BSNL had introduced this new offer on top of its existing plans like Rs 186, Rs 429, Rs 485, Rs 666 and Rs 999 and also for STVs like Rs 187, Rs 333, Rs 349, Rs 444 and Rs 448, but after the rollout of the offer, BSNL introduced two new STVs which come with 365 days validity. Regarding that, BSNL has declared that the Bumper Offer will be applicable on both these long validity STVs as well. These year-long validity plans are STV 1699 and STV 2099, out of which the former ships 2GB daily data to the subscribers and the latter ships 4GB daily data. Both the plans come with 365 days validity. As per BSNL’s information, when paired with the Bumper Offer, the Rs 1699 STV will ship a total of 4.2GB data per day, whereas the Rs 2099 STV will ship 6.2GB data per day to the users.
